Bass Drum Quotes By Andre Dubus

I sing of those who cannot. To view human suffering as an abstraction, as a statement about how plucky we all are, is to blow air through brass while the boys and girls march in parade off to war. Seeing the flesh as only a challenge to the spirit is as false as seeing the spirit as only a challenge to the flesh. On the planet are people with whole and strong bodies, whose wounded spirits need the constant help that the quadriplegic needs for his body. What we need is not the sound of horns rising to the sky, but the steady beat of the bass drum. When you march to a bass drum, your left foot touches the earth with each beat, and you can feel the drum in your body: boom and boom and boom and pity people pity people pity people. — Andre Dubus

Bass Drum Quotes By Paul Bogard

When I lie back and close my eyes, this farthest lip of beach right next to the end of the ocean feels like being up close to an enormous breathing being, the bass drum surf thump reverberating through the sand. Living out here with no lights, alone, you would indeed become sensitive to seasons, rhythms, weather, sounds- right up next to the sea, right up under the sky, like lying close to a lover's skin to hear blood and breath and heartbeat. — Paul Bogard

Bass Drum Quotes By Ben Aaronovitch

We stopped and listened. Just on the cusp of hearing I detected a rhythmic pounding, more a vibration in the concrete than a sound.

'Drum and Bass in the deep,' said Kumar. — Ben Aaronovitch

Bass Drum Quotes By Steve Albini

In the late '80s and early '90s, there was a slightly retro drum sound that was popular in hip-hop music called the 808 bass drum sound.

Bass Drum Quotes By Afrika Bambaataa

My definition of hip hop is taking elements from many other spheres of music to make hip hop.

Bass Drum Quotes By Eugene H. Peterson

Hallelujah! Praise God in his holy house of worship, praise him under the open skies; Praise him for his acts of power, praise him for his magnificent greatness; Praise with a blast on the trumpet, praise by strumming soft strings; Praise him with castanets and dance, praise him with banjo and flute; Praise him with cymbals and a big bass drum, praise him with fiddles and mandolin. Let every living, breathing creature praise GOD! — Eugene H. Peterson

Bass Drum Quotes By Herman Melville

The stillness of the calm is awful. His voice begins to grow strange and portentous. He feels it in him like something swallowed too big for the esophagus. It keeps up a sort of involuntary interior humming in him, like a live beetle. His cranium is a dome full of reverberations. The hollows of his very bones are as whispering galleries. He is afraid to speak loud, lest he be stunned; like the man in the bass drum. — Herman Melville

Bass Drum Quotes By Bill Laswell

Obviously, it's had a huge effect on repetitive music or dance music or house music. Ambient in the last ten years has infiltrated into all those repetitive musics. I don't know what part it plays in pop necessarily but I'm sure there's some connection. But in all the music that deals with experimental repetition, drum and bass, dub, various kinds of house music, there's always been a quality of atmosphere and ambience. I think it's infiltrated that pretty heavily. — Bill Laswell

Bass Drum Quotes By Nick Mason

I've always liked a very dry snare and, like everyone else, a very dry bass drum. — Nick Mason

Bass Drum Quotes By Stephen Marley

Music is like a conversation. One person says one thing that speaks with a harmonica, with a bass, with a drum. They're all conversating, and we're just trying to find a way to make conversation rather than blah, blah, blah. But it's not really so hard a thing to do if you know the way to approach it. — Stephen Marley

Bass Drum Quotes By Ben Harper

I'm not going to do the Ben Harper house record or the Ben Harper drum 'n' bass record. — Ben Harper

Bass Drum Quotes By Al Jarreau

I tour a lot and interview a lot. I'm on the Internet and doing stuff. I go out and promote. I've got a bass drum and a sandwich sign and a washboard. You just have to shout louder and louder that you're still alive. — Al Jarreau

Bass Drum Quotes By Nicki Minaj

Could have called back just to say som' I'm fall back in the bass drumNicki Minaj

Bass Drum Quotes By Megan Stielstra

I could've said a thousand things in that moment, and all of them would've been true. I'd like to travel - Florence and Thailand and Prague. I'd like to write books. I'd like to fall in love a thousand times. Live hard and desperate and full, my pulse pounding like a bass drum. And when I wake up one morning suddenly, surprisingly, a grown-up, I'd like to be sure in the knowledge that I enjoyed it. Every fucking second. — Megan Stielstra

Bass Drum Quotes By Hunter Murphy

The wild notes of tuba and trumpet and trombone rattled and hummed through the trees. In the first group of musicians, there were kids as young as fourteen playing the tuba and one kid who probably couldn't drive banging a bass drum. They stomped together in rhythm to the music. Two ladies had dressed up in what looked like princess outfits. They wore white gloves and socks with tassels. — Hunter Murphy

Bass Drum Quotes By Penn Jillette

I like things matching. I have an upright bass, a drum kit and a grand piano that's the same color. I tend to overthink things. — Penn Jillette

Bass Drum Quotes By Gabrielle Aplin

I love pop music. I love drum and bass, Calvin Harris, all these electronic things, but it's nice to have something organic as well. — Gabrielle Aplin

Bass Drum Quotes By Jay Kristoff

And within the computer's innards, a spreading cancer. A self-replicating corruption. A B-pop mutiny of bass and drum and oscillating frequency. Inane quasi poetry glorifying a pointless act of intimacy. — Jay Kristoff

Bass Drum Quotes By Neil Peart

Bass Drum Quotes By Tom Jenkinson

Bass Drum Quotes By Josephine Angelini

Lying on her side, the warm fire at her feet, Helen's laughter died away as Lucas suddenly went from tuning to playing.
It was like an orchestra in an instrument.
He played with both hands-not one hand picking and the other holding down strings-but with both hands so that it sounded like more than one guitar was playing. Sometimes he hit the strings to make them hum like a harp, and sometimes he hit the body of the guitar like a drum to add bass and keep time. It was the most fascinating thing Helen had ever watched, like Lucas had a dozen voices in his head, all singing the same song, and he'd figured a way to make them come out of ten fingers.
Helen looked at his face and could tell why he loved it. It was like thinking for him, only this was a puzzle that he could share with her as he solved it.
He'd walked into her head when he'd come to her world. And she'd walked into his when she finally heard him play.
It was heaven. — Josephine Angelini

Bass Drum Quotes By Kevin Shields

I love when things bend out of shape. That's why I love drum and bass music. — Kevin Shields

Bass Drum Quotes By Kieran Hebden

When drum'n'bass happened, when the two-step/garage thing happened, there was a chart smash every week; it operated on the underground and the pinnacle of pop mainstream at the same time. — Kieran Hebden

Bass Drum Quotes By Shelley Coriell

The big bass drum in my head started booming again. Guilt made way too much noise. — Shelley Coriell
